200mph and Beyond at MPH ‘07


Automotive advancements and a vast increase in the number of individuals in the ‘super rich’ category has meant that supercar launches have become a far more common occurrence than in the previous century. Thirteen 200mph+ cars have been launched since MPH’s first show in 2003, with an upsurge in the last four years.

So far only three cars from the supercar super league haven’t appeared in MPH’s halls or theatre show. The newest of those, the Ferrari 599, wasn’t available last year. Now the team is aiming to complete its supercar set, as well as attracting as many of the world’s automotive icons into the hallowed halls as possible.

Masters said: “We are living in a golden age of supercars. All of the new money that has washed into Europe from all over the world means the demand is higher than ever. New 200mph+ machines are being launched with a regularity we wouldn’t have dreamed of 20 years ago when the F40 was launched. The McLaren F1 was launched in 1994 and it wasn’t for nearly a decade that the top speed was beaten by the Veyron. We now have a situation where manufacturers are already claiming to have, or are aiming to beat, the Veyron’s top speed. There is an escalating power race going on between the top manufacturers and who knows, we could see top speeds approaching 300 mph in another 10 years.”

Four ticket types are available and cost between £33 and £89 and include entry to a 75-minute live action show hosted by Jeremy Clarkson and friends. The show runs from 1-4 November at London’s Earls Court and from the 8-11 November at Birmingham’s NEC. Tickets can be booked by calling the MPH hotline number on 0871 230 0333 or by logging on to www.mphshow.co.uk.
